Edward Grinko

Pot-Limit Omaha

Edward Grinko opened from the cutoff for a pot sized bet of 140,000, a large portion of his stack. Vegard Andreassen repotted from the big blind to put Grinko all in should he make the call, which he did, putting his tournament life in jeopardy.

Edward Grinko: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Vegard Andreassen: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{3-Spades}

Grinko was already behind to Andreassen's jacks, but when Andreassen improved to two pair on the {k-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{a-Spades} flop, Grinko was a 4:1 underdog to stay alive. When the {9-Spades} hit on the turn, he was left drawing dead. The board completed with the {8-Clubs}. Grinko was knocked out in 15th place for a cash of $12,007, the largest of his career.
